Yiddish music videos with English translations of the lyrics in subtitles

After our two concerts in December I spent a lot of time getting the videos together to put on youtube. My computer is only barely powerful enough to process video files. I have to go away and do something else while the files render and then again when they export and blah blah blah.

Anyway, now there are a big bunch of songs up from the Itzik Zhelonek collection. Here is the youtube playlist of the Yiddish songs with English captions. You can listen to one or all of them.

You can also subscribe to our Yiddish music Youtube channel to get notifications when new videos are added.

We'd like to get a chance to do our half-Polish half-Yiddish program of music by Jewish composers from Warsaw Poland some day. If you have any leads email me: jane@mappamundi.com - thanks.
